MullholandDerp reviewed Ruin of Thieves #4 Aug 17, 2018
8.5

Wow, I had no idea this series was ending. Issue 1-3 were absolutely great, and it was the one comic I was on edge each month to wait for the next chapter. Issue 4 is a bit of a gut punch, because the quality still remained as with the last 3 issues, but it seems as though it was cancelled early. I feel there could have been many more issues in this series, and I certainly wish there were. Giv more

I have subbed to this series since issue #1. The series has had it's ups and downs, but I can safely say this was the best issue to date. The stakes felt real, and the emotions were high for the characters. The art has always been consistent, and there is no difference with this issue. The real draw is the way the characters are interacting with each other and their mechs. The mechs finally f more

Very solid Cable issue. This arc has done a great job of keeping up the action/suspense while giving some good character moments throughout. Overall, very balanced and keeps you engaged. Look forward to the next issue, it is just a shame that it seems to be the last.

I thought this was a solid issue for Tom King. He really did a good job of characterizing both Catwoman and the Joker. I'll say up front that I liked this issue for a lot of the reason's I liked the "I am Suicide" arc, so if you didn't care for that, then this is a hard recommend. I would have rated this a tad higher, maybe a 8.5 or 9, but I really don't care for this art style. It is servicea more

This was an okay story with okay art (sometimes great art, but there were some panels with less than flattering face work). With a $4.99 price tag, you really expect more out of a book. With this, you simply get more pages, so it is a situation of quantity over quality. The story is serviceable, and I do not mind that it is inconsequential to the main Green Lanterns storyline. This could have more

What an issue. I was hesitant about diving back into a Venom book after the re-launch with Costa at the helm, but I felt Cates may right the ship. With a $4.99 price tag, you hope for a great story, and this book delivers. This is a dark story, one that I wasn't expecting, and one that leaves you wanting more. The dialogue by Costa is believable between the symbiote and Eddie, and it really hi more

I was really looking forward to this series. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a letdown. There is a feeling that this is a desperate time in a desperate castle, but not enough of the story/writing was fleshed out to sink that in. The art was great, and certainly added to the overall mood. I think the concept has promise, but this first issue failed to hook me. I will continue on, but with skept more

A nice conclusion to Ales Kot's arc. This issue would feel very lack luster if you just jumped in on #4, but it really does a great job of rounding out the story. There was a simplicity to the story that felt refreshing, a basic character arc shown through the eyes of a hunter. The art continues to do the Bloodborne name justice, and succeeds at bringing the world to life. I am excited to see more

Tim Seeley has finally hit his stride with Green Lanterns #46. This series has had it's ups and downs, but this issue/arc has really set it apart.

This is a solid first issue. The art is flat-out gorgeous and unique, which really helps play to the story's strengths. The writing can be a bit overbearing, but it is being used to set up an interesting story and world, so it all seems appropriate. Highly recommended for fans of fantasy, flawed protagonists, violent unicorns, post-apocalypses, or all of the above!
